This is not your typical guidebook, but Virginia is not your typical state. Virginia has been around for so long, as the place in America first settled by English adventurers, it is rich in historic sites, both the well known and the equally fascinating yet lesser known destinations every history traveler would find well worth a visitif he could find them. As the guidebook says, Some of these sites are very old, while others are of more recent vintage. Some are of national importance, while others are of local or statewide significance. Some are located on the main highways, others are on roads less traveled. Some of the historic places are, in fact, roadsand bridges, and airports, and natural wonders, and jails, and churches, and battlefields, and museums. Many of these historic hideaways are right next door to the bigger, more heavily publicized attractions. Filled with brief historical essays and side notes, photos, driving maps, an index and listing of sites by region, and contact information, Historic Virginia: Your Travel Guide to Virginias Fascinating Historic Sites is the perfect guidebook for those who want to explore the historic byways of bygone Virginia.
